      Take some time to enjoy the beautiful Bay of La Paz as you head out in the water.. As we head out, get ready to see some incredible aquatic life.

      One up-close look at a sea lion's friendly face and you'll realize that these social mammals are intelligent and as curious about you as you are about them. They'll find your attempts at mimicking their graceful movements underwater highly amusing. The pups will be especially adorable as they try to involve you in their antics. They may tug on your snorkel mask or pull on a fin. Interpret every move as a gesture of play, and you and your sleek friend will have great fun together.

      You'll most likely see the pups in June or July. They stay with mom for five months to a year. By utilizing their barking and sense of smell, they always know where family members are located. California sea lions munch on practically any type of marine life, such as mackerel, herring, squid, octopus and small sharks. You'll recognize the males because of their larger size, which can reach seven feet long and 850 pounds. Females grow up to six feet and weigh up to 220 pounds.

      And let's not forget Isla Partida Beach, which is connected to Isla Espiritu Santo by a narrow isthmus. It has a land area of nine miles and is part of the Municipality of La Paz in Baja California Sur. At the beach is where you will enjoy a sandwich, chips, cookies and a soft drink.

      You'll find the Baja sun refreshing, but don't forget to wear a hat, slather on some 50+ SPF sunscreen, and put on some sandals to protect your feet from the hot sands.

      The Sea Lion Used to Live on Land! What??

      If the California sea lion reminds you of a dog, it's because its ancestors used to live on land. What would have been their hands and feet have evolved into flippers for faster and more graceful movement in the watery environment. They also are covered by thick layers of blubber to protect them from the marine water. They can stay underwater for almost 10 minutes.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 48 hours of requested services.
